    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I do the same thing - and I live in the states and several pairs had I tried on in the store and seemed great would have turned out otherwise. So the bay for last education has been great and picked up some beautiful pairs lightly used or seconds for dirt cheap including a walnut Macneil MTO that I am sure I bought from someone on this forum but do not know who.

    Wearing my Olive Neumok's(seconds though I still can not figure out why) today for their first extended run...oddly after thirty minutes there was a weird pressing under my right heel that felt like a bump in the footbed - by time I got out of the car not there at all.

    The bolded sentences are where the money starts to really flow out of your bank account. I started when my godfather bought me some black bit loafers (Verona), which I wore pretty much every day at an internship my senior year of college, then when I started my job, I jumped into some walnut strands and black PAs right away. I've added some brown suede wingtips (an old model), some brown Veronas, and some brown PAs from a combo of Ebay, SF, and Shoe Bank all for $130 or less. Then the trouble (fun?) began....

    Next was a pair of Meermin monkstraps (the Neumora 2.0 wasn't out at the time) for around $250. Next was a pair of Alden boots from a local store in my hometown for $500. Then brown shell Jeffersons for the big bucks. Then a pair of burgundy shell longwings from Alden.....

    I'm thinking I can't possibly need any more shoes at this point, my closet is already stuffed as it is. What a fun few years! I need to pull out everything and do a group shot pretty soon.

    Post a picture. I wonder if you have significant bowing of the sides.

    Went with some Randolph's today. Willing Spring to get here. Especially since it was 70 here on Sunday. However I do have on an AE sweater I got from the clearance sale. Think I like it.

    Does anyone here own the Mojave in unlined cordovan? If so, would you be able to comment on the fit? I'm normally a 13D and am wondering if I could squeeze (comfortably) into a 12E... At the moment I'm thinking this is unlikely.

    Might have been a MTO.

    won't be able to post one now, as I was wearing the shoes yesterday. But none of my AE's have any bowing issues.

    I have that same issue with the right shoe of my brooks Brothers AE MacNeils.
    Was advised by many that it would go away, but I don't think that will happen. Needs to have the heel rebuilt perhaps.

    It's Mardi Gras here in New Orleans . . . and we are having what is officially the sh!ttiest Mardi Gras weather in recorded history. Why not take the opportunity to do the long-delayed family portrait? It's a good moment also because I don't anticipate making too many changes to the family in the near future - (a) I've pretty much got everything I want that AE makes, and (b) I'm running out of room on my various racks.

    First, shell:

    Amazing collection!


    What do you find to be the biggest difference between the brown and cappuccino cordovan? They look very similar in your pics

    Just amazing collection, I am going to be showing the SO tonight so she can get an idea of how many shoes other guys own! I have already started trying to figure out ways to reconfigure the closet to allow for extra pairs.

    You know, it's the display of collections that makes me realize we all spend more on shoe TREES than others spend on shoes.

    I posted this a few pages back but didn't see a response so thought I'd try again.

    How do you all size the 3 last versus others (1, 5, 7)?

    Has anyone ever seen a EE in the 8 or 2 last?

    Thanks!
